Luton Town Under-8s beat Juventus to win the International Cup

Luton Town’s seniors aren’t the only team to win big this season.

I’ve lived in Luton most of my life. I even worked for Luton Town behind the bar, so this story has a special place in my heart.

Luton Town’s Under-8s beat Juventus 6-1 in the International Cup final in Dortmund on Sunday. Not a great week for the Turin side after their senior team went out of Europe on Wednesday.

“It’s fantastic to see the young boys doing so well in their tournaments abroad, flying the flag for Luton Town”

Hatters manager Mick Harford told BBC Sport.

The youth academy has more to celebrate. Their Under-9s team beat Barcelona to reach the semi-final of their U9 tournament in Poland. Between them and the senior team inches away from automatic promotion, it’s been a great season for the Hatters at all levels.
